Home planner guide

The basic of our planning tools

You can plan everything with the help of the IKEA Planning tools. Get started today. When you’re ready, either print out your drawings and product list at home, or save your plan to the IKEA server.

At the IKEA store you can discuss your drawing with one of our co-workers. They’ll go over the final details with you, so you can take your plans from drawing to reality.

How to plan

  1. Draw it, build it and get a full 3D view of your design. Getting a detailed overview of your new home in 3D is a great way to get a feel for what it will look like. The planning tools have a user-friendly interface, designed for non-experienced users.
  2. Create a detailed floor plan. Switch easily between 3D and floor plan view. As soon as you start to draw your new design– adding the right measurements of your walls and placing windows, doors, cabinets, appliances etc. your 3D drawing will update accordingly.
  3. Complete product list included. As you design the planner tool adds a detailed list of all products you choose to include. Name, product description, main material and price.
